Green paper bead, copper earrings

 

Handmade green paper triangle beads lie in the curve of the hammered copper wire, as if the copper wire is protecting them. Copper seed beads flank the ends of the paper beads.

I decorated the paper beads with black and metallic inks then painted them with an acrylic to protect them from wear. This also makes the beads moisture resistant.

The earrings are 1 3/4 inches long, including the ear wire and are 1/2 inch wide.

The ear wire is handmade to compliment the earrings from sterling silver wire. And I include ear nuts in case you like to use them.
